Camino to Commence Drilling in September at its Los Chapitos Copper project in Peru
September 8, 2020
Vancouver, September 8, 2020 – Camino Corp. (TSXV: COR) (OTCQB: CAMZF) (WKN: A116E1) (“Camino” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has executed a drilling contract with Peruvian based drilling company, AK Drilling International S.A. (“AK”), to commence core drilling at its Los Chapitos copper project, near the coastal town of Chala in Arequipa Department, Peru (the “Chapitos Project”). AK was part of the team that drilled at the Chapitos Project during the discovery drilling in 2017. Camino has received authorization from the Ministry of Energy and Mines to start drilling and plans to commence exploration drilling at the end of September. Camino plans to drill up to 3,000 metres this fall.
“Our fall drill program at Los Chapitos is going to have two main objectives:
- extend the down dip and along strike limits of the known mineralization around the Adriana Zone drilled in 2017 and 2018. We have a good handle on the current mineralization and this phase of the drilling campaign is designed to add potential tonnes to an eventual maiden resource.
- turn undrilled targets into discovery holes. The COVID 19 pandemic has given us time to reinterpret the dataset on the property. We have reworked geochemistry, geophysics, spectral imagery and carried out detailed 1:5000 scale mapping and resampling over the entire approximately 1000 Ha area covered by the current EIA drilling permit. This has given us a number of priority drill targets.
We are confident that these exploration drillholes are based on the best available data and have the possibility of discovering new mineralization at Chapitos in our permitted drill area,” said Owen Miller, the Company’s Exploration Manager in Peru.
“We are ready to start drilling again at Los Chapitos to follow up on our copper discovery made in 2017 and 2018. We will operate under our COVID-19 operating policies filed with the Peru Ministry of Health and will endeavour to continue our copper discovery efforts in a safe manner,” said Jay Chmelauskas, President & CEO. “Our geological team is back in the field with the goal to determine the potential size of the copper system at Los Chapitos.”
